Hosted by Accenture.

Book your place on our upcoming professional development workshop, “Making adjustments for disabled colleagues” taking place in 31 October 2019 hosted by Accenture.

In this introductory workshop, you will develop knowledge of disability in the workplace and understand the requirements for making reasonable adjustments as outlined in the Equality Act 2010.

We will also address how delegates can recognise potential barriers and support line managers in making adjustments for disabled employees.

Attending this course will help you:      

  • Develop knowledge of disability in the workplace and workplace adjustments.
  • Understand the meaning and importance of disability-smart policies and procedures.
  • Understand how to identify and  remove barriers.
  • Support line managers in making adjustments for disabled colleagues.
  • Decide whether an adjustment is reasonable, and communicate this in a supportive and appropriate way.
  • Review adjustments that may have become ineffective or unsustainable.
  • Know what support should be available for disabled employees.

This course will provide tools and tips to help support your employees to be confident in delivering adjustments that work for individuals, teams and the business.

Upon booking, your joining instructions will not only ask what adjustments you may need but also allow us to give you basic step by step guidance on several frequently asked questions such as directions, speakers, topics covered and the event running order.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for HR or diversity and inclusion professionals who may be new to their role with minimal knowledge of disability in the workplace, the law, and disability best practice.

We would also like to welcome anyone who has been newly tasked with the responsibility of overseeing the design and implementation of the organisation-wide workplace adjustments process.
